Living within you is the Christ who floods you with the expectation of glory! This mystery of Christ, embedded with us, becomes a heavenly treasure chest of hope filled with the riches of glory for his people and God wants everyone to know it! Colossians 1:27 TPT
What is it that God wants us to know? That the fact that Christ is in us, is all we need, a never ending supply of power the world will never know.
Let’s take a good look at the word embedded. Dictionary.com says it like this: to be or become fixed or incorporated, as into a surrounding mass.
Do you see what Paul was trying to show us? Jesus is firmly planted inside of us and what He brings into our lives are treasures we must discover how to use. How do we do that? Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the light. No one comes to the Father but by me.”
When Jesus said, “Greater things than this will you do,” he meant it. Not just the shear fact that there are millions of Christians in the world today, but what a powerful force if we simply recognized the power we contain.
Yes, we are full of power! Just as Paul said, “This same power that raised Christ from the dead lives in you.” Think about that for just a moment. There is no greater power in heaven or earth than the power that is at work in us. Power to heal the sick, cast out demons and raise the dead and so much more.
I believe that Satan has worked overtime to keep us blind to what we possess. Just as we’ve been blind and deaf to what’s happened in our world, we’ve been deceived into believing we’re powerless. Wake up saints! Jesus gave us all power over all the works of the enemy and nothing will harm us. The key to access all of that is we must believe, for nothing is impossible to those who believe.
I think that’s why God spoke to me to declare over the earth, “EYES OPEN!” He’s made it clear to us that we are His sons and daughters. It’s not just in our DNA, it’s embedded deep within us and can’t be removed. But it’s got to go from head knowledge to heart knowledge. We must know that we know, fully persuaded, than believe that the Word that is in us will heal, save, raise and deliver.
Let’s clean off our lenses so we can see clearly.
